A council has warned residents not to put batteries out in their normal rubbish after the contents of a refuse lorry caught fire.
Bath and North East Somerset Council said the fire started when a waste crew was emptying bins in Bath on 26 January.
The council said a fire service investigation concluded the flames were started by discarded batteries.
It reminded residents that batteries should be recycled for safety reasons.
On its X page, formerly known as Twitter, it said: "You can put batteries in a clear bag in your green box with your weekly recycling.
"Help us keep our crews safe and protect the local environment."
